Thanks............. okay is relative...collar bone broken multiple pieces by the seat belt, surgery last Fri...as one fellow Jeeper put it, "better a broken collar bone than a marble in a paint can"!!

The silver was 63 days old with < 2500 miles.

People always say how "unstable" and "not safe" Jeeps are and I look at pics like yours and mine and many others I have seen on here and think what if I had been in an average "car" Honda civic, Toyota camry, Ford focus, Chevy Malibu, Chrysler Sebring...IMO the results not the same......

Glad you guys doing okay.

Amazing stories...glad for the "good" endings so far!

Sidenote: I was a vol emt/firefighter for 8 years in a small community. My first call ever was to a rollover accident involving a friend and a cousin. Once we were certain they were okay, I chewed them both new ones...

My worst day in a jeep was similar to another story on here. Big puddle. Middle of July, 95 degrees out and we came across a spring fed mud hole that is a local legend for destroying rigs. It was the middle of summer so it was only 2.5-3 feet deep. My Nephew tried it and made it farther than I thought he would.

So, having better tires and a locker I figured I would give it a shot. I didnt know part of my air cleaner had disappeared and my intake ended up working like a shop vac sucking about 2 quarts of water into the engine. Also swamped the tranny and of course front and rear end...

I realized I had taken on water, shut it off and called my cousin to bring his tow bar and drag me home. So while waiting 3 hours for him to get there my nephew kept playing in the hole hitting it harder and harder against my advice and ended up getting water in his engine as well... Mine actually survived internally. But, Ive gradually lost every fricken sensor including the o2 which caused it to run lean and cracked my header and took out the head gasket at least maybe warped the head or block. My nephew ran the bearings out of his. I told him to shut it off and he could use my triple A to get it home. Oh no he didnt have that much water in his... Dumb ass...
